The Five Year Rule

There are times when you need insurance in order to get insurance. This is one of those times.

In order to carry your federal health insurance into retirement, you must be enrolled in one of the federal health care plans for the five years immediately before retirement.

If you aren’t, you can’t be enrolled in or join the federal health care program after you retire.
